Patrik Tigerschiöld has decided that he can no longer stand as a candidate for the Board of Directors of D. Carnegie & Co AB, whose composition will be decided at the Annual General Meeting on 7 April 2008. After further consideration, he has concluded that the work for Carnegie’s Board would require too much time to be compatible with his current position as CEO of Skanditek Industriförvaltning.
The Nomination Committee’s proposal for the Board will otherwise remain unchanged. The Nomination Committee has proposed the following persons to Carnegie’s Board: Björn C. Andersson, Anders Fällman, Jan Kvarnström, Catharina Lagerstam, Mai-Lill Ibsen, (all re-elections) and John Shakeshaft (new nomination).
Owing to the fact that Patrik Tigerschiöld is withdrawing his candidature for the Board of Carnegie, the Nomination Committee in D. Carnegie & Co AB proposes the following to the Annual General Meeting:
With a change to item 9 in the notice, the Nomination Committee proposes that the number of Board Members to be elected shall be six.
With a change to item 8 in the notice, the Nomination Committee proposes that remuneration to the Board of Directors shall remain the same per Board Member, and that the total remuneration thereby shall be reduced.
